I like September. The weather cools to a bearable degree, I can get out my leather jacket and boots. Yay! Also, we are getting closer to BristolCon, only 1,5 months away now! SPFBO continues, the semi-finalists are getting announced slowly and things are getting interesting. Also, my blog will be six months old! Can you believe that? So let’s see what I have in store for you this month!
With August gone, summer is practically over. September kicked the doors in with a lot of rain over here anyway. August was all kinds of awesome as blogging goes. My stats hit a new high with over 1.100 views. I’ve got to knew a lot of new people and overall I keep going strong. Hopefully it stays that way. August also brought a brand new design, a new logo and feature images. I also launched a facebook group besides my page where I hope I can interact with you guys more!
Back in March I decided to start a blog, mainly because I wanted to support some indie authors I got in contact with during my Before Blog life. I didn’t really expect to be succesful or even popular. I thought of it as something to play with in my free time and occupy myself with so I wouldn’t think about how boring my life is. Instead, things got crazy pretty quickly, and here I am, 5 months later, reflecting on how much I’ve changed.
I’m so excited! August will be fun. SPFBO had started yesterday and I decided to shake up my schedule a bit so I could fit some of my picks of the FBR lot in as soon as I can, so I’ll have time to read our semi-finalists toward the end of the year. Maybe it’s not a surprise by now, but I’m taking part in the competition as advisor for Fantasy Book Review. Soon I’ll have my own SPFBO page up here on the blog and have some other plans in the making too regarding our 30 books 🙂
July proved to be another busy month and I had a lot of #reviews and #interviews from Dyrk Ashton, David Hambling, Damien Black, Benedict Patrick, D.M. Murray and music for you. Find everything you missed in my #MonthlyWrapUp post!
Here is what I plan to do in July: read, write reviews, host some authors, listen to music, redesinging and getting ready for #SPFBO 🙂 All fun stuff.
Well, June is over now, and it was another eventful month – both emotionally and otherwise. I attended concerts, read books, got awesome news. Find the details in my #MonthlyWrapUp post 🙂
Here is what’s to come in June: going to read @Willowhugger, @RoboftheHayes, @SmilingDarkly, @NadineBrandes, @David_Hambing. Extra shout out to @AdrianGdMag and @DominickMurray6 for their upcoming book!
May was a busy month and this post turned out to be quite personal. I share a lot of pics about my trip besides #BookReviews, my #MusicMonday and #MusicDiggingFriday posts and #Interviews with @benedictpaddy and @UlffLehmann. Enjoy!
Here we go, my reading and other plans for May.
